My Wall Against Temptation

Dear God,

When I feel the hot, sticky breath of temptation;
On the back of my neck;
And it seems that the future of the next few minutes;
Is far more important then the future of the next few years;
Your presence is like a wall of brick and steel;
It is like a bright beam of light;
A promise that my refusal of temptation will be worth it;
That the future of the next few years;
Is not so hopeless that my resistance to temptation will make no difference;
Anyway;
But that strength now will yield happiness later;
And I praise you, oh God;
That your strength can complement my weakness;
And that together we will prevail.
Amen
